Office, Episode 2 (even though it was canceled) Premier Party

Question: Why a Premier Party for Episode 2?

Answer: Tat was out of town for our actual Annual Premier Party date, so we had to postpone it a week.

Question: What's up with Episode 2 being canceled?

Answer: The VP debates...although they ended at like 8pm...and for WHATEVER reason, the networks thought that "Extra, Extra" was of great importance so it was aired at 9pm. Hmmm...who's running the show down south in So Cal? I say a firing is in order.

Question: So what happened at the Premier Party that wasn't an actual premier, and didn't actually show an epidsode of The Office?

Answer: Watched Season 4 Finale, watched last week's Office, and watched the Pilot of 30 Rock (I'd never seen it and we keep hearing it's hilarious...yes, it was pretty funny)

Also, we ate Office related treats. The Evite specifically stated for all attendees to bring an "Office Related snack to share" and there were fabulous prizes.

Look how clever our friends are:

mixed berry yogurt by the Frisby's
b/c Pam's favorite yogurt is mixed berry

bat cookies by Smiths b/c of the bat episode when Dwight
trapped the bat in a bag over Meredith's head

Cupcakes by yours truly b/c
nothing says Dunder Mifflin Paper Co. like a tray full of sweetness

Bacon cooked on the George Foreman Grill by
the Galbraiths b/c Michael cooked his foot on his George Foreman Grill

An all-edible replica of a bird's eye view of the office by Austin & Whitney.
Pam on the left at the receptionist desk, Michael to the back in his office,
and Jim & Dwight at their desks in the middle

Jim & Dwight at their desks
(big blue blob is the water cooler...obviously b/c Dwight
wanted to hear the office "scuttlebutt")

Tyler's stapler in Jell-O by the Teuschers b/c Jim put Dwight's
stapler in Jell-O...again.

And the winner of the coveted "Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica." shirt & bag ensemble goes to the Galbraiths for the best Office-related snacky.

The runner-up award of "One Schrute Buck" magnetic board and "Office" themed stationary goes to Austin & Whitney.

Yes, I do realize that anyone who either doesn't watch or has never heard of "The Office" thinks I'm absolutely out of my mind. Fair call. But for those of you who share this appreciation with me, you get it.

Until next week...

Those were great prizes. Love the shirt and tote...I may have to recreate it for my own wardrobe/green grocery shopping. Pat was supposed to go to represent the Youngs with a pretzel bar spread. Anyone up for an Everything Pretzel?

The Atwoods said...

yeah, so sad he bailed! pretzel bar would have given the galbraith's grill a run for its money. i'm always up for a buffet of any kind.

Hooray for the lovers of the Dunder Mifflin crew! I was bummed by the empty Office this week. I went ahead and watched a few episodes on DVD. Your party looked like fun.

Whoa...I'm not sure anyone can make fun of my Halloween Village after seeing the time and effort that went into this party! :)

If you are out of your mind, then so am I. For evidence, here are pictures taken at my Office themed birthday party in which attendees were invited to bring an Office related snack and wear an Office related costume. The evening ended with the funeral and burning of a small bird (not real).

The Atwood's said...

Great partay! Wish we were invited...rude. :)

Dwight is the man. I just ordered a sweet Dwight Schrute for President shirt from They have tons of stuff from The Office. They said not to tell anyone, but here is a 10% discount code, pts10 (it is case sensitive, so copy and paste it). Enjoy!

WOW- the creativity all in that little house all at once- I'm not sure how it didn't expolde! You are all so unbelieveably creative! I so wish I could have been there! Sorry it was cancelled- but you did still get to party! We don't even get the channel it is on! So we have to watch it on the internet the next day.

I demand a recount, bacon over a diarama of the office? Lucky for Melissa and Steve I wasn't there to defend myself. Hirama, you are always a winner to me!
